Dancing with the Stars Season 19 – “What do you mean I’m a ringer??” Update

Introduction

A couple of seasons ago, I created a set of criteria with which to measure the benefits some dancers on DWTS have compared to the other dancers. That is, ringers versus non-ringers. I attempted to be as logical and scientific as possible, although it’s impossible to remove all subjectivity from the issue. But it’s far better than simply saying “so and so isn’t a ringer, IMO”. In your opinion? If your opinion is purely subjective with no effort at logical or rational thought, then what good is it??

No good at all, actually. The original series sprung from an effort to debunk the old, tired and stupid claim that the only reason Derek does well is because he gets all the good partners and no one else gets them. Utter BS, of course. It would be a good idea to read that series before starting this one as I can’t guarantee that I’ll include all the same rationale this second time around and I don’t take well to discussing a subject with someone who is so rude as to not read the blogs.

DWTS 16 Preliminary Power Rankings – Part II

So you read my predictions for who is going to be gone before the midpoint of the season.  Now it’s time for my predictions for who’s going to be sticking around longer…and who’s gonna win :-) Read on!

6.) Ingo & Kym – Not sure quite what to make of these two – they’re very likeable and seem to have great chemistry, Ingo seems willing to work hard and eager to do well, and Kym, as always, is a very patient, nurturing teacher that brings out the best in her partners.  But while everything seems pretty on the surface, I can’t shake the feeling that Ingo may be a bit…awkward.  The rehearsal video and the pix we’ve seen so far seem to reveal some “Ralph hands”, and Ingo himself has admitted that he’s not exactly a graceful guy.  I’m also seeing shades of him taking things just a little too seriously – and we’ve seen how being a little too serious and a little too desperate to do well can torpedo a couple’s chances of getting votes.  Now don’t get me wrong – compared to some of the couples on the bottom half of the list (namely D.L. & Cheryl, and possibly Sean & Peta), Ingo & Kym have a great connection and “taking things a little too seriously” is less of a problem than, say, having zero chemistry with your partner or having a partner that just doesn’t seem to give a hoot :-P I just don’t know that Ingo & Kym are going to coast through this season like Hines & Kym did.  Fanbase-wise? I’m inclined to say that Ingo will benefit somewhat from the “soap vote”, although likely not to the degree Kelly did – since Ingo’s character on GH seems to only be recurring at this point, I don’t know that he’ll have as many of the same impassioned fans that voted for Kelly, also voting for him.  We already know Kym is pretty well-loved, so her fanbase should help out somewhat…but I think overall, these two will probably be more on-par with the Cameron Mathison/Edyta partnership, rather than the Kelly/Val one.  There are just too many more popular celebs (likely with better dance skills) this season for a soap star to really have a hope and a prayer of making it to the finale, methinks.

DWTS 16 Pros: Food for Thought – Did Maks Try to “Pull an Edyta”?

I know we’re all still reeling from the whiplash of Pro Watch – old pros are sitting this one out, entirely new pros are being brought in, troupe members are getting promoted, and the status of some pros seems to change from “out” to “in” and back again on a daily basis.  The general question on everyone’s lip: “WTF is going on at DWTS??!!!”

While I don’t have a ton of insider info about what’s going on with the casting (even the insiders seem to be somewhat in the dark this season!), I do have a theory or two, and some knowledge of previous seasons to help back up said theories – and I’m about to share one with you that may or may not put things in perspective, and may or may not help ease your concerns…but it’s one that at least makes some sense, given what we’ve seen unfolding the past week or so and what we know of previous seasons.  Take it with a biiiiig grain of salt, as I’m not 100% confident in the veracity of some of the claims made in it.  And Maks fans of the hypersensitive persuasion should probably just stop reading right now.  :-)

First, let’s go back in time to about 2.5 years ago – the week or so leading up to the season 11 cast annoucement.  Lacey had tweeted something cranky (and characteristically “Lacey”) about not being part of that season’s cast, and we were led to believe that she would be sitting that season out.  About 36-48 hours later, we were smacked in the face by the news that Edyta had suddenly quit DWTS, and Lacey was then excitedly tweeting that she was back in as one of the pros.  What happened??? Allegedly (and I’m using this as a precaution, as the info I’m about to share has been culled from multiple sources – some more credible than others, and not all of it matches up), Edyta had tried leveraging in her negotiations with TPTB – some think she was upset that her husband Alec wasn’t getting asked back as a pro, some say she was upset about the partner she got (which confuses me – read on), some say she was holding out for more $$$, who knows.  Whatever it was, I guess Edyta tried to throw her weight around as the longest-tenured pro on the show (at the time) and gave the producers an ultimatum: “You give me [insert demand here] or I quit.” To which the producers replied, “K, bye then!” I’m guessing Edyta wasn’t expecting them to call her bluff, and she also doesn’t strike me as the type who will swallow their pride easily, so of course, she had to follow through on her promise, and out she went.

Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer Interviewed About Dancing With The Stars, Their Futures, And More

As you know from a previous posting, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer united again to dance, sign autographs, and visit with fans at the Mohegan Sun last weekend. Reality Wanted also caught up with them. Here is a part where Lacey discusses what it was like to be on Dancing With The Stars and what she has planned beyond the show. For more including pics, be sure you see Reality Wanted.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: On Dancing With The Stars, you have people of all different abilities. You have people who have clearly danced before and then those who have no experience with it. Which type of partner do you prefer? Do you like someone who’s more advanced, and you can throw harder things at, or do you like the challenge of someone who hasn’t really danced before and turning them into a dancer?

A. Lacey: Both! I like the challenge and the acknowledgment of my challenge, and me being successful at it. But sometimes, you’re not successful at it so it’s not that fun. WIth people who have dance training, it’s easier to teach them and you can throw harder things at them. I tend to get people who do not dance very well and so I have to have a lot of patience. With Kyle, I was rehearsing with him one hour a day. It was super easy because he picked it up so fast. Same with Lance, we rehearsed a couple hours here and there but other than that, most of my partners were not the quickest learners in the world.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: In the Q&A session with fans earlier in the night, you said that you don’t like competition, but you’ve done six seasons of Dancing With The Stars. What is it about that type of competition that brings you back each year?

A. Lacey: Well, it’s not really me competing. It’s the celebrity competing and my job is to get them as best as they can look. It’s not about being better than anyone else. It’s getting someone who has never danced a step in their life to look like they’ve done it for years. I had Chaz Bono, who was a huge, huge challenge, not only with his mental restrictions with the show because there was so much drama surrounding his situation. I felt so bad for the guy because he was so insecure about stepping out onto the floor. It takes a lot of courage to do what he did. For me, it was making sure he felt comfortable. It wasn’t about the scores. I just wanted him to feel good about what he did. And then with someone like Steve-O, it was like, “Please just get through the dance!” I had another guy named Mark Dacascos, who was fairly well. We kinda just went out there and did fun stuff so people would enjoy it.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: I’m wondering what your future is with the show. What goals do you have beyond Dancing With The Stars? Do you want to do television and movies?

A. Lacey: I’m actually choreographing a show right now for the Stratosphere, it’s called Pin-Up. It’s going to open in February of next year. We have Claire Sinclair, who was Playmate of the Year, hosting and music and production by Frankie Moreno, who is the headliner of the year in Vegas right now. It’s been cool being able to team up with an insane musician and say, “This is what I want in the song.” It’s been a lot of fun doing that. Choreography has always been a huge passion of mine, but I also have a clothing line through Discount Dance Supply. It’s oversold, most items are out of stock. They weren’t going to do any new items for a year and they’ve already asked me to do brand new stuff starting in January. I’ve always loved doing that, I design all my costumes on the show. That’s a really cool outlet for me. If I break both my legs, I can still design! I also sing. I’m working with Frankie Moreno actually on some stuff so that’ll be fun too. We’re doing dance themed music. One will be a tango beat, one will be a cha cha, and we have all these different styles, which is cool.

Lacey Schwimmer Talks Of Dancing With The Stars, Dancing At The Mohegan Sun With Kyle Massey

The Weekender has an interesting interview up online with pro dancer Lacey Schwimmer. They discuss what it was like when she danced on Dancing With The Stars. Below is a take for how the producers pick partners and if she’s ever had difficulty with someone. More at the link as she also talks of her favorite dance on the show, Kyle Massey, and what she’d do if she retired from dancing. For those interested, you’ll be able to see Lacey and Kyle Massey dance at The Mohegan Sun on December 29th. Go here for more information.

THE WEEKENDER: You’ve had plenty of different dancing partners over the seasons you were on “Dancing with the Stars.” How is it decided who is going to dance with who?

LACEY SCHWIMMER: It really comes down to personality. The producers and the casting directors know us as dancers very well; they know what we’re capable of doing. They’ll pair us up with someone we have a conflict with, or someone we’ll get along with really well. It’s really them putting together a perfect casting as a whole.

W: Have you ever had any difficulty with someone?

LS: There’s a lot of pressure on people, especially if one week they have a great week and the next they have a terrible one. There’s not only a lot of pressure on them, but on you as choreographer and teacher to make them deliver. There’s definitely tension. Everyone’s tired and stressed. But the second you go on the floor, it doesn’t even matter. It’s so much fun, and you forget all the troubles you had during the week. You just go on TV in front of millions of people and shake it. I think it’s a good release for America to see people having a good time.

Louis Van Amstel Talks to Parade Magazine about DWTS Season 15

Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up on this one.

Oh boy. Look away, LVA fans, this dude works my last nerve and I ain’t afraid to say so.  Louis talks to Parade and he sounds…bitter. To say the least.

We have changed our tune a little bit. We got a message from Carrie Ann [Inaba] and the other judges. They complimented Sabrina on her technique and dancing, but somehow they’re not looking for dancing on a dance show. Carrie Ann said, ‘You’re playing it safe.’ We were not playing it safe, we were trying to stay within the rules. To me, that’s being respectful, but somehow being respectful was not appreciated. Having said that, it lights a fire, and it made us change some of our thinking. So in the end, I’m thankful. It’s like Christina Aguilera‘s “Stronger,” about thanking her ex-boyfriend for how he cheated on her because it made her a stronger woman.

On tackling the disco tonight.
We’re going for what a disco represents—a lot of fun and making sure we’re having a good time. I actually went and did research, and I was in for a lovely surprise that a lot of hip hop and jazz heritage comes from that era. I also looked at Saturday Night Fever, and I was surprised that the dance level has changed tremendously over the last 40 years. If I would literally do what John Travolta did then, it would not come across the same. So it’s kind of interesting how you have to kind of edit the iconic moves to make it interesting in 2012.

On their disco outfits.
We’re so close to Halloween, and with disco outfits, you can so quickly go costumey. We didn’t want to make a parody or make fun of disco, so we’re still going classy. We’re trying to really make a contribution rather than walking out in something over-the-top or cliche.

So, they’re not looking for dance on a dance show?? Er…sure they are, but they expect you to up your game. You absolutely WERE playing it safe. There was nothing new or creative there. And I suppose you think you’re the only ones dancing?? Uh huh. Let me guess – you’re pissed that Derek and Shawn did so well despite having gymnastics along with their dancing. Why don’t you look to Apolo for an exciting dance…hell, Kelly stayed with in the rules and was wobbly…but she was better than you and Sabrina were as well. Wait!!  Melissa and Tony too. :-)

By the way, maybe lose the window treatment disguised as a costume and I could at least focus on the dance more! You say you’re going classy…we’ll see. :-D

Who are the ones to beat from LVA’s POV?? Well, there’s a very notable name missing. I guess he doesn’t see the threat there??

From a dancing point of view, you can say Gilles [Marini], Shawn [Johnson], and Melissa [Rycroft], but then again, don’t count out Kirstie [Alley] and Bristol [Palin's] fan bases, because they have been on the bottom of the leaderboard. Kirstie was in jeopardy last week but Bristol hasn’t even been in the bottom two once. Emmitt Smith has a great fan base, he’s a phenomenal guy, and he has the moves. It just goes to show you that everybody is our competition.

DWTS All Stars, Week 3 – The Cheesecake Awards!!

Oooo…it’s getting super snarky in here. Hehehehe….

The Award for Pro Most Likely to Win the Role of Cinderella’s Ugly Step Sister: Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Heidi: Dude, seriously – you is one ugly woman. But as an androgynous man you ain’t half bad. :-) What was freaky was how UNLIKE himself he looked. Really, a shave and a wig and you’re nearly unrecognizable?? Amazing. :-)

Courtney: I just have to laugh at the wig itself – that was SERIOUSLY the best Mick Jagger wig they could find? I’d find it more believable if Mick Jagger circa 1970 looked more like a cross between Jim Morrison & a mustache-less Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, with a smattering of the famous Farrah Fawcett hair flip in Charlie’s Angels.  And the pants? Would make Austin Powers himself jealous.  The end result was simultaneously hilarious and disturbing…in that Maks seemed to be enjoying himself just a teeny bit too much :-P

The “Google Is Your Friend” Award for General Cluelessness: Maksim Chmerkovskiy for not knowing what Androgynous means.

Heidi: Well, if it were ME and I didn’t know the meaning of the word that Kirstie was calling me all week long, I would: A) Realize that perhaps I needed a wee bit more education and B) GOOGLE IT. The embarrassing and hard way (but hilarious for the audience) to find out the answer to the question is on National Television. :-) Of course, you can’t know everything. But even a chimp can google. ;-)

Courtney: You know who else can Google? Muppets. :-P

The Award for the Worst Wardrobe Idea Since the Lacey Crotch Doilie (heh): Sabrina, Louis and the Wardrobe Department for the PURPLE Crotch Window Treatment

Heidi: That entire costume was godawful, but I kept getting distracted by the material dangling…down there.  It was just freakin’ weird!  I was like, what the hell IS that?? Of course, the other issue was waiting with baited breath to see if the top half of her costume would hold up to the work out that her boobage was giving it. Ahem…more support is a GOOD idea.

Courtney: Her boobs were REALLY ANGRY this week, as Mama Spence put it.  And each time she stomped or gesture wildly…it just looked painful.  And the big triangular purple phallus just made me chuckle like a 14-year-old boy.  Wonder if Louis was cranky because he was feeling inadequate by comparison :-P Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 15, Week 4 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

So, this is the week that DWTS copies SYTYCD (why copy a fading show??) and does it with crappy music.  Why?? And I also lament that the most creative choreographer on the show got stuck with something he’s done before and doesn’t seem that fond of. :::sigh::: So, he’ll get crazy, put some gymnastics in it, Gilles will whine it’s not fair and drink a bottle of booze (no glass, no class).  He will then imply that all Shawn and Apolo have to look forward to is a Pepsi commercial while he’s an ACTOR. Hehehe…but he got Bollywood. :-D

Gilles and Slumdog Millionaire. That’s like…totally original. Only not at all.  Not only that, but already done (badly) as Kyle and Lacey’s Argentine Tango. Of course, as a Bollywood number we’ll probably get something like Slumdog Millionaire.  It’s probably too much to ask to get the Jason and Caitlin version from SYTYCD.

Kelly dancing to Fix You by Cold Play? Like I said, SYTYCD…pretty sure that it will be hard to beat Allison Holker doing a Travis Wall number.  Of course, Allison is a professional dancer…which is exactly why it’s a bad idea to pick THIS song.

I went ahead an added Mark and Bristol’s song too, since dude tweeted a video of him and Bristol “dancing” to it. Unfortunately, she’ll probably do okay with this piece of cake song.

ETA1: Kirstie’s song is Slllllooooowwww….she should be able to do well. I’m sure “they” hope she does, those manipulating…. :-D  Strictly Come Dancing has done Charleston before, even found a Charleston montage from that show.    And LOL to the Korean school doing a Christmas Charleston.  Heh.

ETA2: Another cop out song. Not only has it been used on the show before by Joey and Kym for their Cha Cha, but it was used in the Vegas show that Sabrina was a part of.

ETA3: Geez. It’s apparent to Courtney and myself that they picked the songs so as to not complicate it further for the pros who got foreign dance styles. But surely they could have done better with the Mambo?? But Melissa certainly got lucky. If it weren’t for the fact that I would lay money on them having the song paired with the dance well before dances were picked for couples, I’d start to get suspicious.

ETA4: Someone had to bring in FOUR outside choreographers for help with her dance. And it wasn’t Karina. :-) Dang, Apolo hit the jackpot this week, provided that Karina can hip hop as well as she does everything else.

ETA5: Depending on how they set the show up, they’ve either put Emmitt and Cheryl at the top of the hour…or buried them. Curious to see which. :-)

ETA6: TPTB are showing family favoritism once again – Kelly has been in the last few dances all but ONCE.  Sabrina is the opposite, which isn’t good. I guess we’ll see if Kelly lives up to the hype. I like her, and her partnership with Val, but she certainly didn’t deserve top of the leaderboard last week. Will they keep protecting her – at Sabrina’s expense?? Or Shawn’s? At least they finally got Apolo towards the end.  He’s been stuck in the middle for three weeks.

ETA7: Hmmm…I find Gilles running order interesting, when looking at all four weeks. Not sure what to make of it. I want to say it’s cuz he’s a douchbag. :-D I hope that Bristol and Shawn are in the right spots, since going second is, historically, the worst spot. Maybe we can get rid of her?  Nah…bad feeling we’re going to lose someone really good while she sticks one more week. 

ETA8: All kinds of changes. Apparently, Derek got their song changed (don’t ask me why I believe Derek did it) and I jumped the guy on Apolo being 8th – he’s 7th and Derek/Shawn are 8th. There’s a long story that has to do with someone telling me Melissa’s order wrong, followed by Karina saying they were dancing “close to the end”. Melissa’s order lead me to Apolo’s order. When I fixed the Melissa error, it didn’t occur to me that “close to the end” for Karina would be 7th. :::sigh:::  A number, Karina, I need a number. :-)
